Materials: Ludvig Laptop shelf/charging station, floating brackets
Description: Inspired by iMac-computer-desk I decided to try finding a solution for us no “iMac/all-in-one” users, but just mini-pc users.
The biggest problem was finding the Ludvig Laptop shelf/charging station around, because Ikea stopped selling it a while ago, so you have to resort to different channels to obtain it.
Then I fixed the shelf to the wall using hidden brackets/anchors to increase the weight supported by the shelf itself.
Last, I switched the original black-compartment, the one below the sliding shelf, with a hand crafted one. Made by a zinc-coated metal sheet (1mm thick) with different holes on the floor and sides (for cables, weight and ventilation reasons).
The rest is your normal wall-mounted monitor, wireless keyboard set and mini-pc. Inside the handcrafted compartment I stored the mini-pc, 10wx20hx10d cm. I think it’s a good compromise between comfort and space-saving.
